Gavin Ehringer will speak about and sign his new book, Leaving the Wild: The Unnatural History of Dogs, Cats, Cows, and Horses, on Wednesday, April 18 at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
Human values and choices determine an animal's lot in life even before he or she is born. The little-examined, yet omnipresent act of breeding lies at the core of Gavin Ehringer's eye-opening book, Leaving the Wild. You'll meet cows cloned from steaks, a Quarter horse stallion valued at $7.5 million, Chinese dogs that glow in the dark, and visit a Denver cat show featuring naked cats and other cuddly mutants. Is this what the animals bargained for when they first joined us by the fire?

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased in advance at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
